John would not go anywhere without his love Elise by his side. Commitment, support, trust, compassion, love, and partnership are just a few words describing John and Elise's marriage.
He was a loving father and a wonderful pop-pop. There was nothing he enjoyed more than spending his moments with loved ones and his dear grandchildren. Family always came first with John. He never missed an opportunity to see his boys or the grandchildren. Beneath a tough exterior John was truly softhearted and treasured his kids.
